Plot Summary

Mary Kom's biopic

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Priyanka Chopra as a school girl, though she almost walks away with it because of her performance, even if not her looks.
  • Mary Kom's little brother wearing what looks like a good pair of jeans when they are complaining about not having enough money.
  • Some of the coincidences - too dramatic and at the realm of unbelievable.
  • Priyanka Chopra doesn't show an ounce of new mommy weight.
  • A lip-sync song! Really?

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

Maybe the school and the coach were in the same town, just left me a little disoriented for a bit. - How did she find her lost passport? - How come a state level match was played between two states? Wouldn't state level matches be between two districts or clubs or something that is part of the same state? - Ummm...you can tell a baby's temperature is close to normal by touching him. You don't have to really wait for the thermometer like you would for a home pregnancy test! - An operation theater with a see through glass?
